SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD

SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD
A group of students studied the Seven Wonders of the Modern World. At the
end of that section, the students were asked to list what they considered to
be the Seven:
1. Suez Canal
2. Dneproges Dam on the Dnepr River (USSR)
3. Atomic Energy Research Establishment Harwell, England
4. Alaska (ALCAN) Highway
5. Golden Gate Bridge
6. Eiffel Tower
7. Empire State Building
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student, a quiet girl,
hadn’t turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having
trouble with her list.
The girl replied, “Yes, a little. I couldn’t quite make up my mind because
there were so many!”
The teacher said, “Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help.”
The girl hesitated, then read, “I think the Seven Wonders of the World are:
1. to touch
2. to taste,
3. to see
4. to hear.”
She hesitated a little, “and then
5. to run
6. to laugh, and
7. to love.”

It is far too easy for us to look at the exploits of man and refer to them
as “wonders” while we overlook all God has done, regarding them as merely
“ordinary.” May you be reminded today of those things which are truly
wondrous.
